EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed the performance of general manager Howie Roseman and confirmed that the NFL's youngest GM would remain with the organization. "I think Howie's done a great job," Lurie said Sunday after the team's season-ending 34-26 win over the New York Giants. Will Howie be back? "Is that the question?" Lurie said. Yes. "Yes. " Roseman, 39, is entering his sixth season as GM. The team has gone 42-38 (.525 winning percentage)

During a meeting with reporters in Boca Raton, Fla., on Tuesday, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was asked what made him think that Howie Roseman deserved to be back in charge of the franchise's player-personnel department after Lurie had fired Chip Kelly in December. "The whole plan was for Howie to really spend the time studying state-of-the-art decision-making around the globe in sports," Lurie said. "We really opened it up, from English Premier League, NHL, NBA, MLB - try to find who the best general managers or 'head of basketball operations' were.

Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

AS ANDY REID trudged toward his inevitable end as Eagles head coach last December, attention naturally pushed in the direction of Howie Roseman, the Eagles' cherub-faced general manager operating in only his first season without Joe Banner over his shoulder. Some, including his boss, Jeffrey Lurie, saw Roseman as a shrewd judge of talent, crediting him with the choices made in the 2012 draft, while discounting his culpability in previous drafts and transactions, including the great free-agent "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, which accelerated the Eagles' dive from playoff contender to their current status among NFL rebuilders.

Picture this: The Eagles are on the clock with the No. 4 overall pick and the first three prospects on their draft board already have been chosen. The best available player is graded appreciably lower than the first three, isn't a schematic fit, and the Arizona Cardinals are offering the No. 7 selection and a third-rounder to move up three spots. The Birds brain trust has prepared for this scenario, but someone has to make the final decision. Will it be Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman?

Howie Roseman "does an outstanding job" in managing the salary cap. Tom Gamble is a "heck of a football guy. " You don't need to read between the lines to know how Chip Kelly views the Eagles' top two personnel executives. Roseman has spent the last decade - five years as general manager - working to establish his credentials as a "football guy" after not coming up the scouting ranks in the traditional manner and transitioning over from the business side of operations. And Kelly effectively put him back in that box when he was asked Monday about his involvement in player contracts.

HOWIE ROSEMAN acted far more professionally than I would have. Had a reporter suggested to my face that I had tried to duck him at a news conference, I would have told him to pucker up to my backside. In fact, if I were Roseman, I can think of a half-dozen times during Tuesday's Doug Pederson news conference when I would have gotten out of my seat and said the same thing to the assembled media - sternly adding, "All of you!!!" It was Pederson's day. The former Eagles quarterback and assistant coach returned to South Philadelphia to replace Chip Kelly as captain of the Eagles' ship.

Howie Roseman could have puffed out his chest or pointed fingers or reveled in an afternoon of vindication. Because as Eagles general manager, Roseman will eventually receive blame and criticism again. It's an occupational hazard. Yet on a day when Roseman was billed as influential in helping the Eagles land Chip Kelly as head coach, he refused to admit he felt vindicated when offered the forum. "I don't want to make this about me," Roseman said. "I think it's about our organization, our team, and giving our fans back the team they're used to. That would be vindication to me. " Roseman had been the target of criticism during the Eagles' coaching search, especially when they appeared to be exhausting their list of candidates.

Jon Gruden and Eagles general manager Howie Roseman have both been drawing questions - in different ways, says Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Gruden has been contacted by four clubs about their head-coaching jobs - and has turned them all down, the "NFL Insider" reports , not naming names. Roseman, on the other hand, is being whispered about around the league as a hindrance to the Eagles landing a top-notch coach, La Canfora wrote this morning . As of 10 days ago, Gruden hadn't spoken with the Eagles, according to ESPN analyst and ex-Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski . Since then, Gruden has been widely endorsed for the Eagles job not only by Jaworski, but former Eagles coach Dick Vermeil , NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock , former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell , and Inquirer columnist Phil Sheridan . And Gruden would be interested in the right job. "He would have loved a shot at the Carolina job, the chance to work with [quarterback]

THERE WAS a moment during Eagles practice on Tuesday when Carson Wentz lined up in the shotgun and tentatively pointed toward the middle of the defense, the way quarterbacks often do when they are identifying the MIKE linebacker. Whether that is actually what Wentz was doing is besides the point: What's relevant is that the young quarterback turned around and looked at coach Doug Pederson, who was standing behind him with a play sheet in his hand. Pederson nodded to confirm that the rookie was correct in whatever he was pointing at, and the play commenced.

If anyone was wondering when the NFL and the media who cover it would reach peak absurdity over Sam Bradford, wonder no more. The apex of ridiculousness in this entire affair was reached Tuesday - not at the NovaCare Complex, but 3,000 miles to the west. In Seattle. There, Michael Bennett, a defensive end for the Seattle Seahawks, was a guest on the Brock and Salk show on ESPN 710 AM. During the interview, Bennett, who is unhappy with his own contract and considered holding out last season, was asked about the Eagles' decision to move up to draft Carson Wentz and Bradford's reactions to it: his request to be traded and his subsequent two-week absence from the Eagles' voluntary team activities.

J UST ABOUT every word Sam Bradford said rang true, until we got to the very last question of Bradford's 13-minute session with reporters Tuesday at NovaCare. "No," Bradford said, when asked if he had any regrets about the way he and agent Tom Condon handled the Eagles' move to trade up to second overall in the draft and select quarterback Carson Wentz. Bradford and Condon requested a trade, and chose to make that request public, presumably to pressure the Eagles into moving Bradford to Denver, where Condon has said he thought there was considerable interest.

Jalen Mills seems to have made the most of his do-over since charges of a 2014 simple assault against a woman were dropped, so it would only be fair to give him the benefit of the doubt after he gave the following unfortunate explanation for why he thought he was originally charged: "The girl - basically it was her word vs. mine. Domestic violence is very serious around the [United States], so women, nine times out of 10, they usually get the upper hand until you go to court. " But Mills, who was drafted by the Eagles in the seventh round, left out a few pertinent details in his answer.

It was another good week for Howie Roseman and the Eagles front office, as one of the team's two holdouts from voluntary offseason activities came back to the fold and it didn't cost them a thing. Quarterback Sam Bradford ended a two-week holdout that really could have been halted after three days, which was the time elapsed between when he left the NovaCare Complex and when the Denver Broncos selected Paxton Lynch late in the first round of the NFL draft. That signaled the failure of the trade strategy Bradford and agent Tom Condon tried to broker, one the Eagles apparently short-circuited by proposing a swap the Broncos found too pricey.

CHIP KELLY was a finicky personnel shopper. He had very specific size-and-weight parameters for almost every position. He wanted smart guys with college degrees and growth mindsets. Didn't want guys with character questions. If nothing else, Howie Roseman proved last month that he is a little more, uh, open-minded than Kelly. He drafted a 5-9 defensive back (Blake Countess) who never would have passed muster with Kelly. He selected another guy who somehow managed to spend five years in college and never declare a major.

The Eagles will begin their rookie minicamp on Friday with every draft pick signed after quarterback Carson Wentz put pen to paper Thursday on a four-year contract that includes a team option for a fifth year. There was little suspense about the negotiation because the 2011 collective bargaining agreement slotted rookie salaries. Wentz will earn almost $26.7 million, with more than $17.6 million coming in a signing bonus, according to multiple reports. He is the first top- five pick to sign a deal.

WHEN HE fired Chip Kelly and Ed Marynowitz, and brought Howie Roseman back into personnel after a year of forced exile, Jeffrey Lurie implied he just might end up hiring a personnel executive who could outrank Roseman. This is known in the advertising business as the "soft sell," which the online Investopedia says is "designed to avoid angering potential customers and pushing them away. " Roseman, never a fan favorite, clearly suffered image damage when Lurie allowed Kelly to remove him from all personnel decisions in favor of "football guy" Marynowitz.

APPARENTLY, JEFFREY Lurie really does want to do this thing right. That's something we haven't been able to say until now. Not because it wasn't true, but because the signs he's sent since firing Chip Kelly and Ed Marynowitz have been as garbled as the explanations he's offered in defense of them. Until now. On the surface, the only way to interpret the Eagles' hiring of Joe Douglas to head up the team's personnel department is that Lurie was serious when he said he wanted to build a legitimate personnel department, and that, this time, he would hold Howie Roseman accountable for the performance of that department.

For Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, the most delightful development over the last few days wasn't necessarily that his team's ostensible starting quarterback decided to show up to work. Yes, it's nice that Sam Bradford said Monday that he'll report to minicamp next week, but some more promising news for Lurie could have come Wednesday with a click on NFLShop.com. There, he would have found Carson Wentz's black No. 11 Eagles jersey among the site's top-selling pieces of men's apparel, for a cool $99.99.
